ABOUT US

THE COLOMBIAN

FILM FESTIVAL

For many years, the film industry in Colombia has often lacked the resources to produce national cinema. Among several setbacks, the absence of a national audience who demanded Hollywood films was particularly challenging. In recent years, Colombia has expanded its resources to support filmmakers throughout the country. Since then, the number of productions has increased dramatically.

The Colombian film festival of New York was founded by Juan Carvajal in 2012, a filmmaker from Cali, Colombia, otherwise known as CALIWOOD for its history and talent in filmmaking. Juan noticed the limited presence of Colombian cinema while visiting New York city. determined to unify the existing diaspora of the country and the New York community, he set a goal to create a festival dedicated to the exhibition of Colombia’s roots and talent. Let’s discover and rediscover our story through film!
